JN+A, HVS Design renovate Hyatt Regency Jacksonville

Jonathan Nehmer + Associates (JN+A) and HVS Design – architecture, interior design and project management firms specializing in the hospitality industry – announced the start of the guestroom renovation at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront in Jacksonville, Fla. JN+A and HVS Design are providing architecture, interior design and project management services for the complete transformation of this property’s 963 guestrooms.

The Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront renovation includes all guestrooms and suites; the Regency Club; the rooftop fitness center; and the addition of new meeting rooms on the 4th floor of the Terrace Building. 

The location of the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville, in the heart of the city along the St. Johns River, provided the inspiration for the design team. Outdated color palettes in the guestrooms and suites are being replaced with blue hues and warm wood tones.  Nodding to local flavor and culture, the design team incorporated regional architectural elements into the artwork package. Subtle textures and patterns in the furnishings reflect the movement of the water and the city.
